Tidy Plates: Link Theme
Version: 5.0.1
by: danltiger [More]
This is a theme package for Tidy Plates. It transforms your unit nameplates into a row of hearts (Zeldaish!).

(Note: This page used to support Tidy Plates: Heart Theme, but a newer version can be found, here. I decided to recycle this page, since I can't seem to delete my unneeded ones)

Installation:

Unzip into your Addons folder, and it will override Tidy Plate's default theme. To enable the threat glow, make sure you go into your Interface panel, and select: Display > Display Aggro Warning > Always
1.2: Plates are smaller; 55% of the original size.

Yep, there is; But, it's not obvious. You can use the "Special Text" feature to show the unit.level (while hiding the standard level text) depending on the status of unit.isDangerous ("Danger" skull, displayed). You'd have to do your own coloring, too.

I'll try to put up the necessary changes, or at least some hints, when I get some additional free time.
Thanks for the help

Is there any way to hide the level numbers if the target is a skull and just have the skull showing?

Oops, sorry for the breakage.. It's updated, now, and should work. I'd gone back and forth with the names, but I've left them out on this release, because, well... I like 'em that way. It's easy to change; Just pop open 'theme.lua' and change "showName = false" to "true".

nice stuff!

Nice skin! Works great for me.

Did this work for you Bhal? I was making the mistake of sticking it in the TidyPlates folder instead of the root addon folder ... even though on the main page it does correctly say addons folder. oops!

Hey Bhal - I'd updated this (and Tidy Plates). I'm hoping that your problem is now solved; I made sure the event handler was triggering the module discovery AFTER all the variables were loaded.

I haven't forgotten about you guys! Just been updating my other projects.

I tested the filigree idea, and the extra hearts, and (to me) it looks VERY busy. My feeling is that I should leave this particular theme as-is, and work on a new one, that incorporates the level/etc. from the start. Perhaps a multi-heart bar, ala Zelda?

I'll post a link to it if/when it's ready.

filigree -- that's the word I was looking for earlier.

Still, it chooses the default skin from TidyPlates instead of Heartplates.

Thanks VPR -

Still working on an alternative configuration for this skin. However, I may just leave this one as is - minimalist - and designed one from the start to carry more information.

More designs are coming :-)

Also, vertical status bars have been a challenge. I've observed the behavior between the vertical and horizontal settings to be different. In the horizontal config, the game crops the statusbar artwork for the relative width of the bar. In the vertical config - SetOrientation("VERTICAL") - it merely shifts the artwork down, clipping off the bottom, and mis-aligning the carefully designed alpha channel. So, for vertical bars, I've restricted my designs to rectangular shapes.

Anyone know how to solve this?

I haven't tried this out yet, but I was looking at the screen shots and it appears that the hears deplete horizontally. Would there be anyway to make the hearts deplete vertically...

You could add some frills (is that the word?) off the hearts giving you a space on either side to place the information. I don't know how to describe it, and I'm not an artist so I can't make a mockup... Like lines in the background that go off and circle amongst itself.

I'd like to see a celtic skin of some sort using celtic artwork like a Tree (similar to the symbol for The Race of Men, I think, in the LOTR movies. It could have been the Elves... Can't remember right now.

Nice idea -- will give it a try sometime.

I'll assume you've made sure both are the most recent version, too.

I think I know what the problem is, and I'll take a look at the code during lunch break. Should have something up in a couple hours..
